6 Advantages of a Zero-Turn Mower

There’s no doubt, zero-turn mowers are starting to take over the marketplace for mowers. Driving by our dealerships or even your local hardware store, it’s about all you see up front. But what are the real benefits of a zero-turn? How do they make your life easier than other mowers? Let’s break it down.

1. Maneuverability

When it comes to mowing, having better maneuverability can help increase your efficiency. Thanks to lap sticks, a zero-turn has the ability to go from forward to reverse in no time compared to other mowers. Zero-turn mowers can also turn around in small tighter areas. No more wiggling forwards and backwards to work yourself out of a tight situation.

2. Faster Mowing Times

The advantage that most people talk about when it comes to zero-turn mowers is that they save time. Let me tell you, they are not wrong. Zero-turn mowers usually have faster ground speeds than other mowers. Manufactures equip them with this capability because they are safer at higher speeds due to their lower center of gravity. They also have options for larger decks. With a larger deck, you’ll be able to cover more ground in fewer passes. Fewer passes mean less time mowing and less hours put on your machine. Remember maneuverability from above? That speeds up mowing too. The less time it takes for you to turn around, shift direction, or to get from point A to point B, the faster you will get your yard mowed.

3. More Comfort

Zero-turn mowers bring a lot of comfort features. One of those features is power-steering in every model. No more wrestling a steering wheel to get where you need to go. Often times they will have a more comfortable seat. Some even have weight adjust seats like our commercial line of mowers.

4. Less Weed Eating

Let’s face the facts, if you had to pick between weed eating and mower, we’d all pick mowing. With excellent turning radius and maneuverability, you’re able to mow closer to obstacles such as trees, landscaping and fencing. Not to say that it completely eliminates the need for a trimmer, but it does mean you have to do less.

5. Wider Range of Models

Most lawn tractors are only good up to a few acres. Our wide range of zero-turn mowers are good for under .5 acres all the way to 5+ acres. With plenty of attachments and features, they can be customized to fit your needs and budget.

6. Better looking lawn

You’ve seen those yards, the ones with the perfect stripes in them, crisscrossing and straight. Looking to do something similar? A zero-turn mower can make this possible. With the ease of maneuverability, you can easily alternate mowing directions to achieve great stripes. Want a more define stripe in your yard? We carry a variety of lawn stripe kits to fit your mower and your needs.
